CAI Software, a provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and related services to customers in the lumber and building materials (LBM), food, precious metals and other industries around the world, has acquired MultiProcess Computer Corp., an international provider of enterprise document archiving and retrieval solutions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“There are tremendous opportunities for growth in each of our core verticals as well as the broader base of industries in which MultiProcess has established a strong presence,” James H. McCooey, CAI’s founder, president and CEO said. “This acquisition will better position us to continue to deliver enhanced, leading-edge solutions that add value to our customers’ businesses and help them succeed.”

Based in Windham, N.H., MultiProcess Computer’s flagship product, the DataView Records Management System (RMS), has been installed at more than 1,500 customers worldwide in the LBM, medical, manufacturing and utilities industries, as well as at government agencies.

“We are very pleased to formalize our 15-year business and technology partnership with MultiProcess Computer, and we look forward to developing the next generation of document management solutions for our respective customers,” McCooey said. “We’ve had the opportunity—at a number of mutual customers across multiple industries—to work with the talented team at MultiProcess and to see, first-hand, the superior technologies they’ve developed and enhanced over the years. It’s great to have them on our team.”

Sarah C. Bell, the Business Development Manager with CAI’s Ponderosa Software, which is tailored to the LBM and millwork industries, said Ponderosa clients shouldn’t see any major changes with DataView, because it’s been integrated into Ponderosa for a very long time.

“We’ve retained all of the R&D and support team at MultiProcess, so they’re going to continue to make that integration better and better over time,” she said.

Serge Gravel, president and co-founder at MultiProcess Computer, said he’s looking forward to working with CAI.

“It’s an exciting time in the 30-year history of MultiProcess Computer,” he said. “CAI has established a leadership position in the ERP software industry within its industry verticals and has recognized the strategic business advantage afforded by the DataView technology and our entire portfolio of enterprise products and services. I am thrilled at the opportunities this transaction represents for both our customers and employees.

The company announced that MultiProcess Computer will continue to operate under that name and that MultiProcess co-founder James Bubnikowicz will assume the role of president. The company will continue to maintain MultiProcess’ development facility and offices in New Hampshire.
